If you still think campfires are synonymous with summer, you’re missing out on one of the greatest pleasures of the Canadian outdoors. Because while stoking the flames in a t-shirt and shorts before sleeping under the stars is arguably the best way to spend a summer evening, there’s something tranquil and silent about a winter campfire that offers a special kind of peace. It’s just you, the cozy flames, the sound of the crackling pine, and maybe a marshmallow or two.

And best of all, you don’t have to worry about being jolted out of your trance by a black fly bite.
